Spoiler Alert

I am so disappointed with how the author portrayed Ryan. He was the biggest a** ever!!! Not only that but the story was bad too! He almost hit her and them all of a sudden he learns of her past, admits to loving her and boom asks her to marry him??? And it took over 80% of the book to even get there!?! He was mean the entire book and then the author quickly wraps the book up at the end with them admitting their love. But even though Ryan was softening, he was still very mean. It jus

I liked the first two books in this series and hoped to like this one. I was SADLY disappointed. I understand the whole revenge thing, but this was beyond that. What happened to the Ryan from the previous books? He certainly wasn’t here. This Ryan was a manipulative, abusive, egotistical jerk. Ironic that he didn’t want anyone else to know about their deal because then they would see him for the sadistic creep he was here. How are we supposed to believe he loves Nicole, when Ryan forces her to p ...more

This book was a decent story of power and love.

There were multiple times the hero bordered on...well it's hard to say this sensitively...but rape, or forcing himself on his live in GF and there were times he was very close to physical violence. To Ryan...NO never-ever means no. For him it means I will keep going til you're so turned on you won't want me to stop AFTER the heroine tells him 'NO' a dozen times. It bothered and troubled me over and over.

Couldn’t connect with the book. And I didn’t like the hero.

I loved the conclusion to this series. Ryan and Nicole were high school sweet hearts like Derek and Jasmine. Nicole left Ryan making him believe she thought she was better than him but she actually left him to hide her abuse at home. Twelve years later she calls him up to help her sister Patsy get lifesaving surgery. Sparks fly again for these Almost lovers. She had never in her twenty-eight years been with a man because dating was really never an option with her constantly working and raising h ...more
This one pissed me off... Serious she was talking about how much she was falling in love with him and he had made her and tried her like a whore... Loved Ryan in the previous books but in his I wanted to bust his nuts with my steel toe shoes!

I liked the plot but Ryan was way OTP. The cousins were all a-holes in the beginning but Ryan topped the list. Also felt like certain moments/ events were missing from the story, too rushed. I also didn't understand how Nicole could still love someone that was so different from who she fell in love with. Ryan basically treated her like a prostitute. And even though he provided for her, he was pushy about it and was disrespectful almost the entire time. Only at the end did he redeem himself and b ...more

If I could give this book a zero rating I would. It was the most horrible thing I have ever read. The writing is so bad I had to force myself to continue reading. There's little to no description as well. I had to wait through half the book to find out what either of the main characters look like. Besides all that the actually plot was horrendous. I don't know how one author could use so many bad plot devices in a single novel. The love scenes were unrealistic and the main male character Ryan wa ...more

This book started out with Nicole’s sister needing surgery. No matter how many hours Nicole worked she couldn’t afford the surgery. She had no choice but to call Ryan her ex-boyfriend for help. Ryan still carried feelings of resentment for the way Nicole dumped him years ago. He would help Pasty, and at the same time get revenge. I normally don’t like books where the main characters want revenge, but this one ended up to be a really sweet romance. Nicole, and Ryan loved each other in high school ...more

Okay so with all the 1-2 stars I was thinking this book wasn't going to be good...but seriously I don't understand why people said it wasn't any good. I found it to be a great addition to the series...Ryan was an asshole at the beginning of the book, but so was Derek in the first book. What I really liked about the book is that Nicole's character had a history of abuse, and not many Romance novels that I have read breach the subject. It was a great story line IMO.
Well worth a 5 star rating!

Really annoyed how Ryan was written in this book compared to previous books. He basically blackmailed Nicole to be his own personal prostitute!!! He knew she would do anything for her sister and used that against her. The fact that she was still a virgin should have gave him a hint that she didn't leave him for another guy.
I liked Nicole .... A little bit she annoyed me too. I know she was a virgin but if your not in birth control and you don't use a condom during sex chances are your going to

The premise was good but it was a bit dragging for me to start with. It got interesting in the part where she wanted to meet up with him but fell flat when the sister got in the picture. The sister was 4 yrs old when she last saw him but 8 yrs later she remembered him! really? what 4 yr old remembers a person that only existed in her life for one year? When I was 4, i can't remember my own name, let alone a man who is not related to me. Don't even get me starting with the Nicole the heroine! She ...more

I'm not surprise if I'm one of the minor here. Minor as in I quite enjoyed the book when others seemed... not. I was thankful I trust my gut to go through and not skip this book.

Main characters are quite exasperating at most times but both of them have great chemistry. I particularly loved the masquerade scene, it was incredibly hot with the mystery and all. In my opinion, this book has so much potential that it's too bad the story's too short.

Anyway, I can't help but notice that most o

Nicole will do anything she as to to save her sister. Even if that means making a deal with the boy, now a man, that she used to love but wronged.

Ryan never forgot Nicole. He wasn't good enough for her as a poor boy but now he has something she needs...his money. He plans to get everything he's always wanted...Her. and when he's done leave her like she left him many years before.

Well that was the plan at least but with emotions, lust, and naked bodies entwined can they keep to the plan or will t

Again Melody Anne had done us all proud..I could not put this book down upon starting to read it.. IT IS HIGHLY ADDICTIVE!To have so much power and be so sexy on top is dangerous..Ryan loves Nicole..but has too much male pride to admit it! Nicole has sacrificed so much that I really commend her! you have to read all the books in this series!!!

I liked this book. A nice, relaxing, romantic read. Can't beat it.
a little bit predictable, but also enjoyable.
a decade later, Ryan and Nicole met again, but the circumnstances are not the happy ones.
.... Nicole needs a favour and Ryan makes a proposal.... :)

I really had a hard time liking Ryan, and I would have liked to see Nicole call him on more of his crap. Still liked well enough that I have gone on to the next one. Happy reading!

My favorite in the Tycoon trilogy.

Ryan's story was the most touching. I loved how family and friendship intertwined in stories of love and passion.

Melody Anne never disappoints!

Relationships is not always love and roses. Sometimes fights makes us stronger. This book is the end of a set of 3 amazing books. 4 stars for all of them for sure.
I enjoyed this book, but not as much as the first two. Lets face it. Ryan was a serious ass. He had been such a nice guy in the other two books, and now we see this other side where he is just a terrible person out to punish the girl who hurt him and now needs his help.

He forces her to be his mistress, but let's face it. He treats her like a whore. He showers her with gifts, but he is so controlling, arrogant, and downright mean to her that it cancels out any good. Until he discovers the reason

The Tycoon’s Proposal: Baby for the Billionaire Book 3 is by Melody Anne. A predictable book about the Titan cousins. It is good and lots of fun to read.
Ryan Titan was the only cousin not married. He felt like he was missing something. The three of them were like brothers and he adored their wives and children. He splurged and purchased a house near theirs and the three of them designed a track through the woods for quads. He designed buildings but preferred restoring historical homes. He also

Could put the book down! Here is a highlight from the book. He looked around his yard , grateful for the beautiful Seattle day. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky, as if the fates were shining down on them. His cousins were playing on the enormous play structure with their children. He smiled at his ever-growing family. He laughed to himself, thinking how hard he and his cousins had fought marriage and commitments. None of them could picture their lives without their beautiful brides, and to top it ...more
